In an English exercise where one must complete the sentence using the correct alternatives, is as follows:
example: We always GO to the cinema on a Saturday evening.
Choice: A) go B) is working.
??????? My brother ____________ in Munich this year.
Choice: A) works B) is working
I consider the appropiate answer as: "IS WORKING (choice B).
However, I feel that both choices are valid, but having to make a choice, I would use choice B.
I would appreciate your opinion on the matter.
"My brother works in Munich." We use the present simple to describe things that are true in general.
For example, "My brother works in Frankfurt, but this year he is working in Munich."
"My brother works in Frankfurt", Frankfurt is his usual place of employment.
"My brother is working in Munich this year", Munich is not his usual place of employment, but this year he is working there.
